Tunnel Falls

Tunnel Falls is the reward at the turnaround point of a 6 mile hike off the I84 in Oregon. The trail passes behind the waterfall here.

Eagle Creek trail was carefully planned and built as an attraction for the (now historic) Columbia River Highway, completed in 1922. The trail was hewn into the basalt rock face with the aid of Italian engineers and dynamite. It's not likely you could get away with blasting a new trail through untouched national forest these days.
